ZFX: Hopes for the reopening of the economy propped up riskier assets

28-04-2020 04:59

Monday (April 27) Review

 

  • Oil prices plunged again. The June contract for WTI crude futures dropped more than 20%, and the June contract for Brent crude also fell below $20. Besides the concern of global crude oil storage capacity, the market is worried that the United States Oil Fund (USO), the world's largest crude oil ETF,  will sell all of its June contracts of WTI and transfer its holding to the longer-term contracts, which added selling pressure to oil prices. However, due to certain expectations of the decline in oil prices, the news has just little impact on investor sentiment.
  • The hopes of reopening the economy and the global central banks actions boosted risk appetite. The Volatility Index (VIX), which usually reflects the level of risk or investor panic, continued to go lower. All three Wall Street indexes jumped more than 1%, despite the drop of oil prices.
  • The Bank of Japan announced expansion of the monetary stimulus that it will keep the short-term policy interest rate target at -0.1% and remove the upper limits of government bond-buying, which is 80 trillion yen. BOJ promised to purchase government bonds with no limit to keep the 10-year bond yield at around zero level.
  • The spot gold edged lower, staying at $1700 level on Monday. Many countries around the world are now trying to ease the lockdown measures which turned the sentiment positive. Long positions tended to “cash out” in gold market when risk on.
  • The situation of the global pandemic is still not that optimistic, with more than 3 million confirmed cases worldwide and more than 210000 deaths.

ZFX analyst Jacob Leung said that the risk appetite is now dominated as investors are now expecting the restart of the global economy. In the short term the hopes may “overshadow” the other bearish factors, like the gloomy outlook of oil prices. However, as always mentioned, investor sentiment is always sensitive. Any fall short will cause reversal move easily.
